The issue is entirely an offer for sale by promoters Nishant and Rikant Pitti, who are offering shares worth 255 crore each, at a price band of 186-187 apiece. Analysts said the grey market premium for the shares was around 90%, or 160-165 on Monday.

“We like ETPL given its lean business model, differentiated offering and strong customer connect. However, the travel industry which has been significantly impacted due to covid-19, is likely to take much longer to revive, though recovery is visible and the vaccination drive would further propel it. The issue is valued at 49.9x FY21E P/E on an annualized basis. Being the first in the segment to get listed in India, ETPL could generate high investor interest," said Motilal Oswal in a note to investors.

The listing will be on or around 19 March. Nishant and Rikant Pitti hold a 49.81% and a 49.68% stake, respectively, in the company. Earlier, Easy Trip had allocated 12.20 million shares to anchor investors at 187 apiece, raising 229.49 crore from 35 entities, including 26 mutual fund schemes.

Axis Capital and JM Financial are managing the IPO.

The company offers a comprehensive range of travel-related products and services for end-to-end travel solutions, including airline tickets, hotels and holiday packages, rail tickets, bus tickets and taxis, besides ancillary value-added services such as travel insurance, visa processing and tickets for activities.
